The next-generation iPad presented last October brought an improvement introduced a year before by the 5s iPhone: Touch ID. At the time, Touch ID was nothing more than a way to unlock your iPhone and confirm the purchases in the various digital stores that Apple has in the terminal.
If we compare its capabilities so that has won over the year, it is undeniable that their evolution has accelerated the passage. In particular, this version 2.0 Touch ID together with 8 iOS allows:
- Unlock access to apps like 1Password.
- In combination with Apple Pay, it gives a giant step in the mobile payment.
- It can also be used to confirm online shopping.
- Other third-party applications (and those yet to come) as payment of the rental flats or parking.
Touch ID is quickly becoming the feature star of the latest Apple products. Those who have tried this system on the iPhone or iPad, know the comfort, safety and ease of use that provides. This that is why It is inevitable to think about what we can expect from this system in the future.
Touch ID on the Mac, a question of when
The Mac is the last great product that lacks Touch ID
I think many people take for granted that we will see a version of Touch ID on a next generation of Mac. The question is not whether Apple will incorporate it or not, but when. The problem of security in desktops still anchored in something that has hardly evolved for decades: the password.
Implement Touch ID on the Mac would solve the access to your computer in the same way that the iPhone and iPad. Posing the finger on the power button (for example) we could give access to the computer in a way that is fast, comfortable and safe. Our footprints would keep in a Secure location adapted to the Mac, a part of the own chip of A series designed by Apple for the iPhone and iPad that neither the hardware nor the software access.
With the addition of Touch ID to your Mac., Apple completed its proposal for security. It is a logical step in the differentiation that always pursues its competition Apple company. Unlock a computer with fingerprinting is nothing new, other manufacturers are doing it for years. What is new is that a high number of times properly is.
Changing the security on the internet
One of the least discussed aspects of Apple Pay is their ability to make online purchases. During the presentation of the new iPhone 6, Eddy Cue said that Apple Pay is also able to pay for our purchases online with greater ease, security and privacy.
In particular, detailed a process of buying regular online where we give our data, delivery, credit card address and even give us high as users. With Apple Pay these hit obstacles are solved:
- Completion of orders with a single touch.
- Without entering our credit card.
- Without giving details of our direction because it does automatically.
- Without sharing any information with trade.
Safari in iOS already allows you to save passwords and users. If we add this to Apple Pay enables lightning-fast online shopping, we have a giant step in the online world.
The most powerful revolutions often start quietly, hidden in the shadows- Richelle Mead.
You can make Touch ID and Apple Pay the materialization of that promise to eliminate passwords and users never had come so far. Touch ID allows to authenticate us (different from identifying us) while Apple Pay makes it simple to purchase online. Two sides of the same coin.
In this way, the iPhone, iPad and Mac would be three devices that provide an experience far superior to the rest of platforms online. A proposal that would tempt users of other systems and It would encourage existing users of Apple to complete their ecosystem and close the circle with the devices that they lack.
After seeing studies on shopping online in the past Black Friday and the influence that have iOS devices, will Apple change our concept of security on the internet?
